This week the Bear Den (3rd graders) visited Goffstown's newly remodeled Station #18 on Church St. They got the full tour from the firefighters and EMTs to help them fulfill their Paws for Action belt loop. The scouts got to try on the heavy fire coats, and experience what wearing an oxygen tank feels like. They also got to check out the fire engines and the ambulance, and hold the Jaws of Life.
Big thanks to the Goffstown Fire Dept and the Professional Firefighters of Goffstown for your time and enthusiasm for showing our scouts all about what you do!
